A friend asked me this week, “What do adjustments actually do to the spine besides make a cracking noise”? He knows that every time adjustments are performed on him, he feels better, had more energy and flexibility and wanted to understand precisely why. However, to fully grasp the concept and philosophy of chiropractic, you must recognize how the body works and what may cause problems that minimize the body’s natural healing and function. We all understand that the body is a self-healing, self-regulating entity. For example, when you fall and get a bruise and cut, what naturally happens in days? It heals. That is the best definition of health I explain to my patients. Health is not how you feel but how you function and heal, which is coincidently the first four letters of the word Health! When the body…

A Fort Lauderdale Chiropractor Explains the Importance of Incorporating Balance Exercises into Your Workout Routines. A Fort Lauderdale Chiropractor might ask “What is the number #1 component that all living things(including parasites, plants, etc.) have for survival?” The answer might surprise you.   It’s not air or water. It’s Motion. We must be able to move to thrive in life. Adult humans are made of 206 bones and about 650 muscles. We are not meant to sit 8 hours a day working on computers. We are meant to move. That’s why gyms have become abundant for many to get or stay in shape for a healthier body and more importantly to prevent disease. We all know about the importance of strength and cardiovascular training because that’s the majority of what we see and do at the gym. However, we need to understand…

Eating and exercising through the decades: A Fort Lauderdale chiropractor tells how to live well in your senior years To keep your back and joints healthy as the decades progress into your 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, you should visit a Fort Lauderdale chiropractor to discuss the best plan for your particular lifestyle and health issues. When it comes to aging, your chiropractor will recommend certain ways in which you can learn to live better, so that growing older doesn’t interfere with living your life. Each decade comes with the same message: Eat right, exercise right, to live right. As we age, our bodies start to send us messages that we never heard before – or maybe we heard what our bodies were saying, but chose to ignore their wisdom. In your 60s, healthcare professionals advise packing your meals with…

From hot to cold: A Ft Lauderdale chiropractor discusses how temperature affects joints and pain South Florida’s summer heat came early this year and if predictions are correct, it’s going to be a very hot summer, by South Florida standards. Hot weather is difficult on the body and everyone is affected. Those who suffer the most, though, are people with chronic pain, because their systems cannot regulate as effectively in hot weather. A skilled Ft. Lauderdale chiropractor will be able to help you alleviate that pain, through gentle manipulations that help restore the joints to better functioning. But why is heat such a pain for people with a chronic pain condition? In South Florida, the problem is heat combined with humidity, which acts to increase inflammation, and subsequently, causes pain in joints and muscles. Weather can also, in fact,…

Doctors of chiropractic are interested in several areas of your health but the chief among these, of course, is your bone health. Bad bones can lead to an array of problems that can begin in youth and carry on through adulthood and later into life, stifling movement and, as a consequence, limiting lifestyle activities. As a chiropractor in Fort Lauderdale, I have seen many cases of people whose bone health has been compromised, whether through an accident, poor diet, lack of exercise, or a combination of these. But a skilled licensed doctor of chiropractic is also trained to employ many methods of treatment to address conditions arising from health issues such as osteoporosis. A chiropractor knows how to heal injuries to the bone structure or any compromised issue of health that can make bones generally weak. Through use of spinal…

Listen: Your bones and joints are sending you a message. They’re telling you it’s time to concentrate on a more healthful diet. When you eat mostly bad fats, sugars and processed foods you are sending your body a message – that it’s OK to not perform optimally. Most importantly, it signals a downturn in personal health, a spiral that could make you a prime subject for disease of the bones, muscles and joints. The bottom line is, changing your diet could change your life.  Nutrition is a vital component to great health. The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) states that bone, muscle and joint health are closely related – and it’s true. These systems work in sync and any loss of integrity to one system affects the other. “A healthy diet can help you prevent and manage osteoporosis and related musculoskeletal…

Why Ft Lauderdale chiropractic care can keep you in shape You may feel mentally that you’re still a teenager, but physically, your spine is showing signs of aging. You don’t move as quickly as you once did; bending down is tougher, as is getting up from a seated position. Do you want to reach for something on a high shelf or lift a box but can’t do it, because the spine pain or stiffness prevents you? Worse, if you give it a try, the move could leave you laid up on the couch with a heating pad. How much does chiropractic care help the aging spine? According to a study, Chiropractic Care for Seniors, published on superhealthy.com, 87 percent of those who seek out chiropractic care rate their health as good or excellent. Sixty-six percent of people who do not…
